EC briefed on analysis markup

Met with EC to show her the documentation and the basic markup process. She'll now go away and pilot with DM.

Endings encoding documentation coming along

Ahead of tomorrow's meeting with EC, completed a first pass through the documentation for the interview encoding, in the form of an ODD file, and added ODD processing to documentation to the build pipeline. Tweaked the CSS quite a bit, and then fed that back into the Keats project, where it originally came from.

Converted the rest of the taxonomy from the spreadsheet

Did a semi-manual conversion of the spreadsheet data into a first draft of the analysis taxonomy, and wrote an explanatory email (whose contents should end up in the documentation from the ODD file eventually) to DC and DM.

Finished JADH presentation

In between wrestling with vSphere and test-building vms, I've finished the first draft of my presentation on search engines for JADH. One more to go.

Progress on encoding tools

I now have a basic XSLT transform working, which does the hard stuff -- it creates tagging which can be used to render in a human-readable way multiple coloured underlines for nested codes. I still have to do the control panel and work on the CSS, but the hard bit is done.

Endings: preparing encoding tools for coding

I now have Oxygen able to insert linked anchors and prompt for analysis codes. This is coming along nicely. I think we should have a pilot version ready by the end of next week. We'll need to write a fairly sophisticated two-step XSLT transformation to create an HTML version that's useful for reading/proofing, but there's nothing there that we haven't done before.

Endings: working on Graves Solr search

The requirement to include components such as spaces and square brackets in the GET URL for the server is severely problematic, because the eXist httpclient:get function rejects them; if they're escaped using percent escapes, the Solr server doesn't like them, but if they're escaped using XML entities, eXist rejects them.

This may be gotten around by using httpclient:post, with httpclient:field elements; see the testSolr.xql file currently in the Graves app, where I've been doing some early testing.

I may actually need to go back to running my own local Solr and local eXist for this dev work, because it's too awkward having to edit stuff in the live site (which is the only way to call the real Solr instance).

Schema and taxonomy for coding interviews

I've made a start on creating the taxonomy, with one sample major category with subheadings, and I've now written some comprehensive ODD processing that not only builds these values into the schema, but also extracts and preprocesses the Schematron, for later speedy validation. I've also updated the ODD to add new things we need, and added some Schematron rules to constrain how anchors are going to be used. Talked at length with EC about this work. We will need some processing into HTML to enable easy comparison of two coded texts side-by-side, for reconciliation/checking purposes.
